The amount of alcohol consumed by drinkers in England may be much higher than previously estimated, according to a new study.
Researchers at University College London have compared alcohol sales figures with the amount members of the public claimed they drank.
They found a significant shortfall, with almost half of sales being unaccounted for by the survey of alcohol consumption.
The findings could mean that as many as 75 per cent of people may be drinking above the recommended daily alcohol limit.
The study also found that 19 per cent more men and 25 per cent more women could be regularly going over the recommended daily limit.
The UK's chief medical officers have previously stated that regularly exceeding four units a day for a man, or three for a woman, could be putting health at risk.
A unit of alcohol is the equivalent of around half a pint of regular beer, or just under one small glass of wine.
